Two issues[edit]

  1. The Republic of Macedonia map with Kocani markered is possibly unfree, as no license information is provided.
  2. Using the name Towns in Macedonia only for settlements in the Republic of Macedonia might be a bit offensive for some Bulgarians and Greeks alike, as it (here unintentionally, I suppose) implies some kind of ownership over the whole region, which is shared by Greece and Bulgaria too, by the RoM. Putting a RoM map and flag and naming the template just Macedonia is, well... controversial, and it should be avoided to try to identify the RoM with the whole region.
